Hunt Story

I got in the box blind around 6:30 a.m. with it still dark outside. I’d say around 7:25 a.m. four doe made their way out of the hardwood bottom through the planted pines and to the feeder. As I watched them for 5 or so minutes, I looked over to the left where they came from and I instantly see antlers. As he makes his way through the pines, I slowly inch my gun up and finally I'm able to get my scope on him. I immediately notice his mass and dark antlers. A few more steps and I would’ve had a clear 40-yard shot. But they all spooked. He trotted back 15 to 20 yards and was walking away. He walked around a pine tree, and I was able to stop him broadside. Squeezed off the shot and saw him run about 50 yards to the edge of the hardwoods, and I heard him crash about 3 seconds later.
